13:30 Al Riffa

With so many newcomers the market should prove very informative, the most appealing debutants on breeding look to be Boy Scout, Shot Of Love and Navalny. However, previous experience could prove crucial here, with AL RIFFA preferred to Fleetfoot.

14:05 Unless

Unusual to see no previous winners declared for a race that has often been informative. It could be worth giving UNLESS another chance, though she is likely to be tested by both Madly Truly, who edged her out of second place at Leopardstown, and Shelton who was behind her at this venue but shaped as if she might improve considerably from the run. Newcomers Sweetest Rose and Delightful should not be underestimated.

14:40 Cairo

Probably an ordinary enough maiden for the venue. CAIRO comes from a family that has been a good source of juvenile winners for Ballydoyle and could well be up to making a winning debut here. Beauty Crescent and Wave Machine have both shown enough to suggest they will be hard to keep out of the frame, Yuzu and Decorated My Life are newcomers to keep an eye on.

15:15 Go Bears Go

A lot of water has gone under the bridge since GO BEARS GO beat Castle Star in last year’s Railway Stakes but the outcome may be the same. Dave Loughnane’s colt can confirm Newbury form with Dubawi Legend, while the Stack runner should be near peak fitness now three weeks after his seasonal debut. Power Under Me, second in this last year, is a much more likely danger than Gustavus Weston who beat him on that occasion.

15:45 Big Baby Bull (NAP)

A good second at Galway last week, BIG BABY BULL (nap) retains plenty of appeal off his new mark. Tyrconnell needs luck in running but is certainly on a decent mark, while potential improving 3yos lurk in the shape of handicap debutants Janoobi and In Ecstasy.

16:15 Bradsell

Faultless in his two starts, BRADSELL can maintain his unbeaten record in a strong renewal. Aidan O’Brien, seeking his 17th win in the race, sets a poser by declaring both Blackbeard and Little Big Bear, the former having the stronger form credentials but Ryan Moore preferring the latter. July Stakes winner Persian Force and Railway Stakes winner Shartash are by no means out of it in what is likely to be a strongly-run contest.

16:55 Gordon Bennett

Not too many appeal here so it may pay to stick with the in-form GORDON BENNETT, now on a career-high mark. Superior Force has a bit to find with the selection on the Naas form but was finishing off well on that occasion and could reward each-way backers here.

17:25 Big Gossey

Several of those who have been running against BIG GOSSEY in recent months are taking part in the Group 3 sprint earlier in the day. Charles O’Brien’s runner has been creeping up the handicap but deserves a change of fortune, and may get it by upholding Rockingham Handicap form with Neo Soul. Harmony Rose went very close to ending her losing sequence last time and should be in the mix again. Strong Johnson likes this track and trip and should not be ruled out.
